Great partially preserved construction of the 16th century. It is a must visit in Manila. It was the nerve center of the Spanish occupation in the Philippines, home to several thousand Spanish colonists, their families, and their Filipino servants. A lot of great picturesque spots.

Great Tour. Very passonite about his love for the Philipines. A little OA (over acting) but that’s the Philipino way. I learned so much about the history of PI as a Cano (Cacausian). https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g298573-d2394485-r151694963-Walk_This_Way-Manila_Metro_Manila_Luzon.html

If you go to Manila you won't miss a visit to Intramuros. Do not expect something expectacular but still it is part of Phillipines history. A lot of spanish influence.

Hi, Intramuros would be a fairly easy walk from the cruise ship docks. It might take about 30 minutes. The easiest route might be to walk to the main cathedral and fort area. They are on the edge of the Intramuros.
